I returned to Major's Hill Park to get another view of tulips days after my first visit. The bed behind Colonel John By's statue was in full bloom.
Walking along that bed gives background views of landmarks like the Connaught Building and the Chateau Laurier.
While at the far end, Parliament Hill can be glimpsed looking west towards the Colonel.
Gorgeous display of lovely tulips and great views tooReplyDelete
Colonel John By also enjoyed ... LOLReplyDelete
...the beauty continues.ReplyDelete
Great looking statue and beautiful tulips! Enjoy your day, have a great week ahead.
Amazingly, many Canadians are unaware that Ottawa was originally called Bytown - and why.ReplyDelete
A lovely place to visit William!ReplyDelete
Like the statue and those gorgeous tulips! Wonderful photos!
Have a lovely day!
I wonder will Colonel By’s statue be one of the ones in question these days?ReplyDelete
You must have taken hundreds of tulip pics!ReplyDelete
Ottawa must be the city with the most tulips.ReplyDelete
@Jenny: thank you!ReplyDelete
@Ella: the Colonel would be pleased.
@Tom: and more to come.
@Eileen: thank you.
@David: Bytown back in the day could be a rough and tumble place.
@Marie: I shouldn't see why.
@Red: somewhere in the vicinity of four hundred this year.
@Red: at least in North America!

I just Googled Colonel By and learned he was responsible for the Rideau Canal and once I looked at it on the map, I could see why they put up a statue to him.ReplyDelete
